    Landlords “Agent”

    We rent a property that is owned by one person however his partner / spouse has conducted most of the tenancy such as advertising at the start, viewing referencing, and then going over the lease and rent details and key handover etc. Once we moved in the landlord her and us tenants were in a WhatsApp chat together for any issues on the house and so. She sends most of the correspondence and makes the arrangements and so on but she doesn’t own the house - is this allowed?

    Who is named as landlord in tenancy agreement ?? (Yes, appreciate address may be c/o "agent).

    You don;t have to own a property to be the landlord.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      What is the actual issue, if the issues are being dealt with isn't that a good thing?

        It's ok if the landlord doesn't own the property but you might want to see that the landlord has permission to let it. The owner might have health issues that prevent him from conducting the landlord role. The partner might have Power of Attorney , for example, or might be on the title deeds. (you can check this on the Land registry website for £3).

          I think that needs expanding. Whilst there may be a tenancy it will not bind the owner if the tenancy was granted without his authority.
